This Is What It's Like To Watch "Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban" For The First Time

Cuarón is a genius. This was epic.

Posted on

This week, I watched and live-tweeted everyone's favourite film of the series. Here's what I thought.

A month ago I'd never seen a Harry Potter film, now I'm watching Prisoner of Azkaban for the first time. Let's do this! #finallywatchingHP

The Minister of Magic is at The Leaky Cauldron. Harry thinks he's going to be punished.

Warner Bros.

"Why, if I punished every wizard who murdered someone, Azkaban would be full. To say good job on a murder well done, I've bought all your school books for you."

The film looks stunning, by the way.

Loving the look of this one. Cuarón is a genius. #finallywatchingHP

The students are all off to the nearby village of Hogsmeade, but not Harry, for reasons McGonagall explains in her delightful Scottish accent.

@wordsbydan he's basically called "Wolfie Wolferson"
